‘Rocket’ Calla Lily flowers in a saturated maroon hue. Callas are striking additions to perennial and container gardens and make exquisite floral arrangements. Calla Lily bulbs are easy-to-grow and will result in regal, elegant blooms in just over two months time. Callas are also favored for their foliage, which is lush with glossy, heart-shaped or pointed leaves, often flecked with white spots.

Native to South Africa, Callas prefer moist soil and sunny locations. Planting in containers where they can easily be watered is a great choice in dry climates. They benefit from shade or protection from intense afternoon sun, which can burn the foliage. In hot climates, the plant will die back and go dormant after flowering. Callas are perennial in zones 8-10; in cooler zones, you can dig and store the bulbs in a cool, dry location for the winter, then re-plant them in spring.
